Fire destroys shoe factory

‘Erosha Enterprises’ a shoe factory at Rajamahavihara in Navinna caught fire earlier today and was reported to us at 11.45 a.m., the Fire Department said.

The factory which manufactured boots for the army was closed at the time of the fire, which is believed to have been triggered during some repairs being carried out at the welding plant.

Fire Department Officials said fire trucks from Dehiwala and Kotte were dispatched to the scene soon after the residents in the area reported the incident.
